Punishment 18 Records – 2013 – Italy
AZRATH-11 are from Italy. “Ov Tentacles And Spirals“ is their henceforth second cd (after “The Shrine Ov All Hallucination“) which is distributed by Punishment 18 Records.
Is the beginning with “Even The Gods Deny Our Solemnity“ yet rather bombast-epic instrumental is done at “Of Stormblades And Waracles“ a 360 degree about-turn. Now, Death Metal is celebrated. No halting riffs, but fast riffs in the upper mid tempo area are now the topic. Underlaid with an incredible fast doubleblast drumming receive the Death Metal riffs sufficient severity and aggressiveness. The interspersed melodic parts indeed relax the wounded up to the bursting point atmosphere a bit, but this doesn’t last for a long time. The strong-willed vocals give the production additional pressure and darkness. By the diversified use of tempi and also melodic solis now and then “Ov Tentacles and Spirals“ get at no time verbose. To the contrary: The guys know exactly how to thrill and delight the listener. Headbanging non-stop is here by all means the order of the day. Technical impeccable recorded you notice that here professionalism and joy of playing to the fore. Listen to the cd. It’s worth it!!!!
